Abstract: The techniques and components used to measure both linear and circular polarization at wavelengths from 0.3 μm to 20 μm are reviewed. Some emphasis is given to the implementation of polarimetry on the latest generation of large-aperture telescopes and some of the difficulties being encountered are addressed.
